Is sportswear’s the new trend?

by Lee Oliveira on May 16, 2011

As much as I love Nike running shoes, I would never expect to find these little numbers at a fashion event. I have never seen them before and I must say… they needed to be photographed.

So girls… are you in love with these shoes?

So weird! But they are cute :) and they are probably more comfortable than regular heels :)

WOW! Fair play for pulling these off, would be good to see the whole outfit that went with the shoes. In all honesty, she can pull them off, but I couldn’t! – WMS.

Can’t say I’m in love but they don’t look like a disaster either. In difficult times fashion’s always outrageous, you know, and that’s good.
Maybe couple of years ago I’d have said they should keep sportswear out of high fashion, but then Karl Lagerfeld started designing for Nike, MqQueen for Puma and Jeremy Scott for Adidas. But these were mostly sneakers, so I’d say that these Nike heels are rather suffering some kind of identity crisis.

Not my cup of tea but they sure will get everyone’s attention which I think is the main point of them – to get people talking about the brand.

I have a pair of wedges that look sort of sporty, but these are too much, I think!
I’d love to see the rest of the outfit…

Melissa May 16, 2011

I have a very funny feeling about this, Lee!! I was just talking about how I think sneaker wedges are going to be really hot, but I had no idea it was going to be this wild! Good snaps 😉


hannah May 16, 2011

I don’t think high-heeled sports shoes of any kind are every a good idea, but kudos to her for having the courage to wear these. I have seen far worse though. I remember when the high-heeled first emerged a few years ago with a chunkier heel.

OMG. I don’t think these work as a sporty heel or a runner. Two thumbs down (although I love Nike in general). Man. What a crazy shoe!

Mary Jo May 17, 2011

The high heeled sneaker was super disco in the 70s and resurfaced in the early 80s. So funny that this time around it’s with a stiletto. Guess that reflects the zeitgeist of the times. Sexy but sporty–haha! Great pic!

Lucy May 17, 2011

Well, sportswear is definitely a trend, albeit in subtle colours this season. These flashy numbers are a little in-your-face. I wonder what she was wearing on top. Would be interesting to see the rest of her outfit.

OMG!!!! I would never ever expect to see anything like! I’m between like and dislike. However, it is a fashion trend so I think I will keep as smth that a few can wear and those few who wear it I’m absolutely sure they will look great in it.

Congrats for the first anniversary of leeoliver82.

Love ya!!!

Lynzy May 17, 2011

Whoa! They just want to put a heel on anything these days. I am willing to try some pretty crazy trends but Nike’s with a heel? I’ll take a pass on this one 😉

You are so right they really needed to be photographed. I would love a pair of these. Xxxx

Laura@Artfully Artista May 17, 2011

I would never wear them because they are not my style. Aesthetically I find them very pleasing as long as they are well done, and these I really like.
